She wore ruby red shoes in honor of her grandmother, Dorothy, and has sparkling blue eyes that are just as bright as her contagious smile. Kara was absolute perfection on her wedding day, and her handsome prince, Carl, looked equally as sharp.
Kara and Carl got married at St. Paul Cathedral, and had their reception at the elegant Grand Ballroom at the Omni William Penn. Kara’s family is very close with the Archbishop of Pittsburgh, who is a long-time friend of the family. The Archbishop presided their ceremony, and gave a touching homily with the theme “If the shoe fits,” which perfectly (and purposefully) tied into Kara’s favorite accessory that she was wearing that day- her red shoes in honor of her grandmother! One of my favorite moments that we captured that day was Kara showing the Archbishop her red shoes, just minutes before she walked down the aisle.
I also loved watching Kara and Carl’s first dance- they started off slow, and then cut into fun music with choreographed moves! It was such a perfect moment for this couple because it reflected their light-hearted personalities, and we experienced first-hand how much fun they have together!
